I spent most of this week sorting and deciding how to
organize the contents of the last three doc boxes. Most of the remaining
documents are Nancy’s artwork, as well as a few family documents. I learned how
to use envelopes within folders, which has made organizing small, loose things
like photographs way easier.
Lisa and I walked through entering everything into
Archivists’ Toolkit, so I would have a better idea of how the collection would
be presented to researchers. That was really helpful, and I think I have a
decent idea of how I’ll organize the last few doc boxes. I’ve also started
gathering info for the bio that I’ll eventually put up on Archivists’ Toolkit.
I’m going to folder Nancy’s artwork by medium, as there aren’t
enough dates for chronology to be very useful. She has scrapbooks, picture
books, pastels, pencil and pen sketches, a few oil paintings, and mementos of
her time in France.
I’ll leave you with an “action shot” of this table trying
and (mostly) succeeding to contain all the stuff I spread out on it while I was
trying to get everything organized.
Until next week,
